October 18, 2009
I am Meenal Goenka, pursuing MSc in Management for Business Excellence. This is my second week in the university, and i am quite settled. As a person I like to try new things, and adapt to changes. So when we were told of writing blogs, I liked the idea behind it. Whenever we read information, we tend to believe we have understood it, but we don’t think of putting the ideas collected together in a constructive manner. Writing a blog actually made me think deeply of my thoughts about a particular thing.
Well, what I can see is, writing a blog in itself is learning. I tend to improve my writing skills.
Whenever I have a topic to study, I always get stuck on how to go about the subject, on how to proceed. Then we were told about Mind Mapping. Well, I tried to do that with the mini - projects we were assigned and it helped me improve my performance. Mind Mapping is simply classifying and structuring your ideas in different heads and sub-heads so that there can be a flow of ideas. It allows greater creativity. You don’t miss out on any part of the topic because you have everything written down under different heads.
Well, while working on Mini-Projects, I got to learn a lot of things. I got to know my team mates, their approach of learning, and their way of thinking about a particular topic. It made me think about the way I learn and how I can improve on it.
Well, I think writing a blog will also improve my communication skills; I will learn to communicate and convey my ideas properly to be able to understand by other people.
